Re: How can one find his previous preview page (uncreated)? (Lazarus)

in reply to How can one find his previous preview page (uncreated)?

I use a FireFox plug-in called Lazarus. Solves this problem fairly nicely for many sites, since most of them don't squirrel away unfinished form submissions.

I also tend to edit substantial posts in a real editor. So the browser crashing or even the editor crashing doesn't mean I've lost the composition. I've also heard of a browser plug-in that makes such happen automatically ("vim everywhere"?), but I've never tried it (cut'n'paste isn't terribly hard).

    I use the ViewSourceWith Firefox plugin, whose named purpose is to let you configure an editor for View Source, but also lets you pop up an editor on textareas. So any post much longer than this one I just pop up gvim, and can save it arbitrarily often while writing.
